Description - Wetlands by Theda Braddock
Wetlands are a vital natural resource and an integral part of the ecosystem. Yet they are also fraught with contention. Landowners, developers, ecologists, policymakers, and the courts must all navigate a complex landscape that requires knowledge not only of the relevant science of wetlands, but also the relevant policies, procedures, and legal precedents. In Wetlands: An Introduction Theda Braddock and Diane Hennessey guide the reader through this complex maze, presenting the most important information in an accessible way.
The book opens with a brand new chapter on wetland jurisdiction and its history in the U.S., before explaining the basic science of wetlands-what they are, how they fit into the complex natural scheme, and the particular function and value of wetlands themselves. Fully updated chapters on wetland classification and the controversial issue of delineation round out the first half of the book. The second half explores the topics of permitting, enforcement, and litigation in detail, offering necessary information and practical guidance for all parties involved in wetlands disputes. This new edition has been extensively revised and updated, and presents the most up-to-date and important information on wetlands and their regulation.

*A brand new chapter on jurisdiction

*Extensive updates within all chapters.
*Updated Table of Cases
Special features includes:
